Mirabaud’s active commitment to contemporary art goes well beyond its vast collection and the acquisition of artistic works. True to its values – passion, responsibility, conviction and independence – the Group not only supports artists, but also institutions and events that help promote contemporary art to the widest possible audience. This is why Mirabaud passionately supports both the MAMCO (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art) in Geneva and the exhibition Nicolas Party: The purple hour (Mauve Twilight) at the MMFA.
“We are proud to support this exhibition, which allows the Montreal and international public to discover the work of Nicolas Party and experience his imaginary, colorful and immersive universe,” says Sylvain Racine, CEO of Mirabaud Canada. Known primarily for his pastels and saturated color murals, the Swiss artist also produces paintings, painted sculptures, prints and drawings.
Mirabaud is delighted to be associated with the MMFA, a leading cultural institution, recognized for the diversity of its collections and for its exhibitions showcasing Canadian and international artistic heritage. Driven by an innovative and inclusive vision, the MMFA lives within its community and aims to make art accessible to as many people as possible. These values resonate with those of the banking group: Mirabaud’s website includes many examples of works from its contemporary art collection, making them public and accessible online to a wide audience.
“The Group has been committed to the artistic avant-garde since its founding in 1819, and the diversity and breadth of its art collection reflect a pluralistic vision of today’s world. The collection includes both emerging and established artists. Supporting young artists is essential for the Mirabaud Group, which acquires works and promotes creativity and innovation in all its forms,” continues Sylvain Racine.
Lionel Aeschlimann, Managing Partner of Mirabaud and CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management, said: “The Mirabaud Group’s commitment to contemporary art reflects the importance of artistic creation in our society, a unique effort that allows us to step out of our comfort zone and pushes us to look inward or to look at the world through different eyes. Creativity is fundamental for any type of innovation. Supporting contemporary art means supporting avant-garde ideas and the artists who bring these ideas to life. For more than 200 years, Mirabaud has been guided by these values, questioning the place of the individual in the world and accompanying artists in their endeavors”.
About Nicolas Party
One of the driving forces behind a revival of the symbolist figurative tradition, Nicolas Party is recognized for his painted sculptures and his brightly colored pastels and frescoes. His work is an imaginative revisit of genres such as landscape, still life and portraiture.
Born in Lausanne (Switzerland) in 1980, he made his artistic debut as a graffiti artist. He then pursued a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (2004) and a Master of Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art (2009). His work has recently been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions, including MASI Lugano (2020), FLAG Art Foundation in New York (2019), M WOODS Museum in Beijing (2018), Magritte Museum in Brussels (2018) and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC (2017).
